Passio Gateway ID

Control access and track passenger movement

Controlling Passenger Access and Validation of Riders, Passio Gateway™ provides unparalleled control and intelligence of WHO is using the transportation system, WHEN they are using it, and HOW OFTEN it is being utilized.

Request Demo

Controlling Access

Many transportation programs are funded by users and those who benefit from it. Passio Gateway™ provides a straightforward way to limit access to the transit system that is easy for passengers to use and understand and avoids passenger/driver conflicts.

Access Control

Safety and Security

One of the great challenges in operating a transit system is reducing the opportunity for uninvited or unauthorized passengers to gain entry to the system. By requiring identification media such as a mag stripe or RFID card, and validating the user information against a database, those individuals who don’t belong on the bus don’t get on.

Safety & Security

Passenger Intelligence

Access to outstanding reporting and ridership data is critical to the success of any transit system. If multiple entities participate in the transportation system, Passio Gateway™ can automatically report on the number of users by department, location, company, school, or other identifying factor.


Additionally, if the objective is to track passengers by type, (i.e. faculty, staff, or students) that capability is built in to the core system.


Finally, validation information, such as active, inactive, or denied is tracked and reporting for every passenger.

Passenger Validation

Billing & Budget Allocation – Passenger Tracking

Using the Passenger Tracking module, each boarding passenger will swipe or tap their ID card as they board. This data is safely stored on board the vehicle and uploaded to our reporting server. Through our dynamic reporting tool you’ll be able to report on all passenger activity by department, group, organization, or affiliation.
